Winter has come at Cavendish Venues & the London @CitySelection Fam Trip 2018 – #GameOfVenues #London @CitySelection #Eventprofs
Bracing ourselves for the snow, the London City Selection (LCS) this weekend (23rd-24th February 2018) hosted its annual agents’ Fam Trip, this year entitled #GameOfVenues #London @CitySelection, a Game Of Thrones inspired weekend of fun co-ordinated by Events Chair Oli Hargreaves from the Barbican @BarbicanVenues.
Cavendish Venues@CavendishUK contributed in participation with Event Sales Executive Mariam Khan being a Team Leader for the #VenueSlayers team over the weekend along with Diana Dibusi and Eleni Semertzaki also representing at the mini-expo on the Friday.
The event saw exactly 20 agents from the likes of Banks Sadler, Conference Care, Ellis Salsby, First Choice and Venue Search London take part in a series of challenges at member venues across the City of London. For the 3rd year running, a winning formula of activities throughout the weekend were organised by LCS’s official partners, Right Angle Events@RA_EventsLtd with their very own Adam Wegg as Jon Blizzard/Snow in charge of proceedings.
The weekend began with an evening reception at One Moorgate Place@OneMoorgate where agents were welcomed, assigned team leaders and had to collect pieces of a puzzle as they met with venue stands. This was before being whisked to their hotels for a 2-night stay courtesy of fellow LCS accommodation venue members at The Montcalm, Crowne Plaza Kings Cross, Thistle City Barbican, the Dorsett City Hotel, the Doubletree by Hilton Tower of London & the ACE Hotel.
This was followed by a full traditional breakfast at Museum of London@MOLEvents before agents and their team leaders were unleashed upon the City of London to go around the venues by completing a series of challenges at each. These included re-enacting a scene of Game of Thrones, making swords, designing the House banner for the team, decoding a message, & making origami ravens.
A wonderful lunch stop was provided at CCT Venues Barbican with a pig’s head even for effect and the day concluded with a drinks reception and final challenge at 230 Bishopsgate Institute @230Bishopsgate with Hubbub Catering@HubbubCatering & Mayfair Catering @MayfairCatering.
To bring the Fam weekend to a close, teams gathered at Painters’ Hall@Painters_Hall to regale their tales of the day and enjoy a gala dinner followed by an after party of drinks and dancing, with entertainment provided thanks to Blank Canvas Entertainment@blankcanvasent: wonderful caricaturists and a superb jazz band.
There, a fine 3 course dinner prepared by Life’s Kitchen@LifesKitchenLtd was served at new member venue Painters’ Hall as kindly arranged with Sarah Levy and her team, pre-empted by a speech from LCS Chair Rowan Kitching of The HAC@HACEvents who awarded winning prizes. Fittingly the room boasted paintings of royalty.
Robert Harris of the London Stock Exchange also took a star turn:
Prizes included tickets and drinks at Sadlers Wells and the Barbican; lunch at the Museum of London; a hamper from One Moorgate Place; a three-course lunch for four guests at The HAC and an urban axe-wielding experience for 4 people courtesy of Cavendish Venues@CavendishUK thanks to friends at WhistlePunksUK @WhistlePunksUK were awarded.
